Volunteer of the Week

Winston Fitzpatrick
Augustine Literacy Project

Winston Fitzpatrick has gone above and beyond the call of Duty in her devotion to the goals of the Augustine Literacy Project. She's tutored many students, stepped up whenever help was needed, and served as a practicum coach, training new tutors to help low-income, struggling readers across the Triangle.

Winston's greatest achievement is the difference she's made in the life of one her students, who might have had a bleak future had it not been for her longstanding commitment and hard work. When Winston met this young man he only knew a few letters of the alphabet; now he's a fluent reader and an engaged student. He now serves as a demonstration student for Augustine Literacy Project training sessions. 

Thank you, Winston Fitzpatrick, for your dedication-you have made a real difference in our community!
